mom talks about son who wets the bed

Go After The Real Bedwetting Problem

,

“First of all, I can’t pull this part to I say thank you to the whole team over there. I think it’s only those families who are in the same situation as we were What a huge relief it is for everybody really to get to this point to have a child who is not wetting the bed anymore.

I can say now that I have a happy 10 year old boy who is highly intelligent and proud and confident and happy! For me to be able to see my boy going to a birthday party and sleep over night and have no fear of wetting the bed at someone else’s house is the most important to me.

There was a time when I thought maybe we would maybe never get to this point, but we did it. It’s only because we got into this program, which i think is wonderful. I had Claudia –wonderful Claudia–all the way supporting us.

I had my moments when all the family found it difficult to keep on going and do the practice and do everything that we were asked to do, but it was worth it….more than worth it.

I would encourage all the families in the world to try this method–to go after the problem– because bedwetting is not something that will just disappear by itself. This is something we are told; that it will disappear through time. I think this is the biggest problem–that we believe in it–and we keep waiting and waiting.

I just couldn’t understand why we didn’t find the program sooner.

I’m glad we found it. It’s so logical.”

Research All You Need to, But You’ll End up Coming Back to This Program Because it Works.

,

 

“Hi, I’m Charity, and my little boy is Jack, and he’s nine years old.

I had done a lot of research. We worked closely with our pediatrician and a urologist to try to make sure that I could find something. I didn’t want him to suffer without a program.

I actually looked at the references or the testimonials of other parents, and they had mentioned that their children had ADHD. People from all over the country and world were able to be successful in the program, so I thought I’d give it a try.

He has been diagnosed with ADHD since he was four, and he’s been on a constant regiment of different medications. We’ve tried melatonin at night to get him to sleep He has definitely had sleep problems since he was born.

He ended up on medication called Quantity. We’ve basically been on that medication throughout the program.

You were fabulous, and I mentioned that to you when we graduated us that I felt really blessed to have you consistently stick with us, and I didn’t feel judged when I couldn’t feel I could do it anymore with this long process. You provided a lot of information that was tailored to him, and it worked.

I felt supported, and it was definitely something that each and every time I talked to you, you would make things specific to him. You also gave me encouragement about how you had other parents and clients going through certain things as well.

It was just really nice knowing I had you the whole time.

LORI: What has been the best thing for Jack as a result of not wetting the bed anymore?

MOM: Probably his self esteem. Just something as simple as wearing the same underwear up to the next morning without having to take a shower every single morning because he wets. He can go to the next evening and shower because he feels like it, and not because he has to.

Of course, I get to sleep during the night now if I don’t have to worry, and it feels like a weight has been lifted off our shoulders. He is looking forward to going to friends’ houses that he hasn’t been able to go to because he was worried about wetting.

So the sense of freedom and his self esteem… those are probably the big things.

LORI: Have you seen any difference in his behavior?

MOM: He’s acting a lot more mature and independent. I would honestly think that his behavior has changed because he slept better, and maybe it has even effected his grades. He’s always done fairly well, but just being able to get a good sleep pattern has made a difference in that.

I would encourage any parent to go through this bedwetting program.

Research all you need to, but you’ll end up coming back to this program because it works. It’s tailored to you and your child, and it’s successful. I wouldn’t waste any time whether they are three years old or 12 years old or older. Just start this program and you will have amazing results. I just wish I had found it earlier and started earlier than I had.”

16 Year-Old Continued Wetting the Bed – Why Trust Us?

Bedwetting counselor, Claudia, works at Enuresis Treatment Center

 

We are always grateful when a family wants to share their experience with other parents searching for help for their child, especially a teenager, to stop wetting the bed.  Here is the written version of this mom’s conversation with her counselor, Claudia, as they were completing treatment.

MOM: I’m so unbelievably grateful, and also just to this company. Words can’t begin to describe how truly thankful we are for all it has done.

After so many years of dealing with this problem, I can’t believe it’s no longer an issue in our house. I have a very healthy, happy, dry teenager, so we just want to sincerely say thank you.

Our previous experience was with a company called Pacific International. It was a very long and draining experience that we had, and it was also unsuccessful. We started the program when my son was nine years old, and were very optimistic that it was going to help him.

We tried on our own, but knew we needed help at that point.

I’m sure as anyone knows who is dealing with this problem, it’s very heartbreaking to see your child wake up wet every morning.

Pacific International told us that the program should work anywhere between one and two months to six months to a year at the longest.

My son was on that program for four years. At that point we said that that was enough, and we asked for a refund. They pushed off that request, and asked if we could try a couple more things.

Of course we did. We wanted to try more things because we wanted our son to be dry more than anything. The money wasn’t that important; we just wanted to get him dry.

The things they asked us to do were things we had already done and that hadn’t worked the first time, but we still tried.

After another long period of time–probably more than six months at least–we called it quits. To this day, we never received a refund that was promised, and I know we never will.

But we stayed with that program for so long–probably over the course of six years–because we wanted for our son to be dry.

We honestly didn’t know what else to do at that point. We just had no other answers. We were hoping and praying that he would grow out of it on his own, but he never did.

So for about a year, we just did nothing. Sometimes he would have long stretches of dry periods, and sometimes he would have long stretches of wetting. At this point, he was approaching 16 years old, and we knew we needed help, and that’s when we found the Enuresis Treatment Center.

CLAUDIA: Wonderful! So why did you trust us? What made you trust us?

MOM: First of all, we loved how the company began…by a woman looking for a solution to help her daughter. Gaile was wonderful on the phone. We knew a lot went into finding and researching solutions that worked, and we were just very impressed by all the people we spoke to.

I’m going to be very honest with you. We were very skeptical about this program –as you can only imagine — after all we had been through. We were also very tired and drained from working so hard at this for so long with no results.

As much as we were hopeful and optimistic that this was finally our answer, we went into this without that brand new excited energy that you might have when you start something new, but something felt different, and we knew that we were going to give it a shot.

CLAUDIA: Do you have any difference you want to share with us?

MOM: There were a lot of differences to the program actually that we found. While some of the methods were actually similar in nature, ETC had a lot of positive differences. For one, just the equipment in general. It was so much more comfortable for my son and so much easier to use. Also, a couple of the simplest exercises that he did on your program were so effective, and he had never done that before in the past –they were never presented to him. That was a great step, and obviously that worked.

One other big difference that comes to mind. On the other program, the only communication we had with our caseworker was through the mail. If we had problems or concerns, we would call, but it was not on a regular basis. Only as needed.

Here with you, we were assigned a wonderful caseworker who I spoke with every two weeks. It was wonderful; so personable. I was able to ask questions–even the smallest ones– regarding my son in particular. It was personal in nature, which was great. It was a great process.

Teenager Bedwetting Challenges

,

Parents trust their pediatrician or they would look for another one! However… when it came to bedwetting, my pediatrician’s only advice was to wait.  I now wish I would have asked how long to wait or why wait or what the heck is the reason my bedwetting child turned into a teenager who continued wetting the bed.

Why did I think my pediatrician was a bedwetting expert in the first place?  Because that is what you think when you five year old continues wetting the bed. You talk about it with friends when they are late – five or six… then you stop asking the other mothers.     My 15 year-old finally demanded that I search for a bedwetting expert.  You had the only answer that made sense – he slept very heavy.  AND he wet the bed.

No wonder he would struggle to get up in the morning.  No wonder he was tired during the day.  His teachers repeatedly remarked (over the years) “if only he could work to his potential”.

At some level, I knew the sleep had something to do with his teenage bedwetting, but I never thought the heavy, sound sleep was poor sleep.  I thought he was the best sleeper of my three children!

He failed the college entrance ACT, in my opinion, even though you cannot fail this standardized test.  He did not reach the minimum score in order to even be considered for admission into the colleges we were planning to visit. One of the reasons he earned such a low score is because he had a terrible urge to go to the bathroom and had to be escorted out of the room

I told my son that some schools do not require ACT scores, as well as community colleges.  We talked about entering a community college and then transferring once he had solid grades.   Now my son was worried about solid grades and bedwetting.

I was connecting more of the poor sleep dots…

Your program was very step-by-step and definitely addressed all the sleep and bedwetting issues. I have to say, your entire staff fully realizes the impact this type of sleep – heavy, beyond awareness of anything around him and difficult to awaken in the morning – has on everyday life.

His morning behavior began to change dramatically.  Waking up dry after years and years of soaking the sheets, blankets, and mattress pad, felt like a miracle.  He had a smile

We decided to wait to retake the ACT until completing your bedwetting program.  I know you can take the ACT many times, but I did not want my son to feel like a failure over and over again.

Our pediatrician never asked anything about the bedwetting.  He never asked about history of bedwetting in the family.  He never asked what my son thought about the message to wait and don’t worry.  Don’t worry, are you kidding me.  Maybe a six year old does not worry about bedwetting, but a 16 year old.  How insensitive.

Once we were in your program and my son began to see improvements, he shared many of his feelings.  We had no idea he felt this way.  We thought that “not making a big deal of wetting the bed” meant he was fine with waiting.

Together, my son and I created this list of his “ Bedwetting Life”  thoughts and feelings.  It was shocking.    I recommend you share this list with all parents who are waiting…..

  • He told me that he felt like a failure every time he woke up smelling urine soaked sheets.
  • He never wanted to hear “don’t worry, you will outgrow the bedwetting”. He said it was insulting, as well as very confusing.
  • He wanted to punch the doctor in the face and put a diaper on him and make him wear it for tens years so he would truly understand the situation.
  • He was tired of the teachers telling him work on focusing when all he wanted to do was take a nap.
  • Why doesn’t everyone know about the sleep part of bedwetting. If that is the real cause…. Teach the entire world to explain this.
  • He was mad at us for telling him to go to sleep earlier if he was waking up tired and cranky.
  • Why would a doctor tell parents to have a nine year old help with the wet sheets. Just a little kid…. If bedwetting is not my fault, why does this feel like punishment
  • Stop asking me every morning if I wet the bed. Now I feel like a triple failure.
  • Stop telling a kid bedwetting is normal. It does not feel normal and none of my friends wet the bed.
  • Why would you make me responsible for hiding the pullup every time I went to a sleepover. That made it seem like this was shameful if you didn’t not tell the parents at the sleepover to help me.
  • I never wanted friends to come to my room because I was worried they might smell pee.
  • The word normal and common are not helpful words for someone who has no idea why they are wetting the bed.
  • Those reward star charts are cruel. It totally made me feel like I was not doing anything right.  All I did was go to sleep and wake up wet.  Nothing but darkness in between night and morning.
  • He dreaded Wellness visits because of the bedwetting. The doctor never asked about the bedwetting, but when mom brought it up and kept asking for answers… same stupid response.
  • I kept asking myself what was wrong with me. Why was I tired all the time?  Why was I wetting the bed?  Why was this suppose to be normal for a teenager???

We decided to wait a few months after completing his program before my son would prepare and retake the ACT college entrance exam.  You already know the outcome!  His scores revealed he was reaching his potential and would definitely be accepted into many colleges.  We were so relieved and I am very proud of my son.  Everyone has noticed a difference in him.

As parents, we see a young man blossoming.  He wakes up is ready for the day.  His teachers noticed such an improvement in him – alert, focused and prepared.  He makes his bed (from time to time). He invites friends to his room.  I could go on and on.

Again – thank you.

Deep Sleep Bedwetting – 16 Year Old Robbed of Childhood

Deep Sleep Bedwetting robs granddaughter of her childhood.

A grandmother recently called our bed wetting clinic regarding her 16 year­-old granddaughter. She shared through her tears that the deep sleep bedwetting has “robbed” her granddaughter of her childhood.

When she visits her grandmother, she sleeps on the floor because she doesn’t want to “ruin another mattress”. She has refused to attend sleepovers because of feeling embarrassed, and over time, her group of friends stopped inviting her.

She refused to spend any time with boys showing interest in her.

She’s always felt she was “different in a bad way” often remarked that all she does is disappoint everyone. This is not uncommon for us to hear. We admit that we are always stunned to hear about this kind of trauma, but we are not surprised by it, either. Bed wetting all by itself— without even discussing the devastating effects of the deep sleep disorder causing it—is burdensome, stressful, frustrating, and deeply impactful to one’s self­-esteem! And our self- esteem helps shape how we relate to others and how we see the world around us.

This grandmother felt heart­broken for her granddaughter for having to experience something that produces sadness or shame or guilt. She told us that if she could end her granddaughter’s bedwetting forever, it would be the gift that keeps on giving for a lifetime.

We’ve been honored and privileged to see miracles happen for thousands of people over the years. 41 years to be exact. I should know… I was the first patient. When my mom ended my deep sleep bedwetting, my whole life opened up and I began to feel good about myself for the first time! And that’s when she decided to bring this program —and the miracles — to the world around us!

We invite you to call us today – 800-379-2331.
